GPG worked in Tanzania as part of a consortium, led by Palladium and including the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), BBC Media Action and the Dutch development organisation, SNV, to deliver the Institutions for Inclusive Development (I4ID) programme in Tanzania. This DFID funded project worked to strengthen democratic institutions and governance in Tanzania so that they are more inclusive and accountable, and economic growth provides more benefits for poor people.

Consortium partners worked closely to implement activities in three interlinked areas: deepening democracy, collective action in the public interest, and research and learning. Drawing on its expertise in representative politics to focus on the first, GPG worked with parties, parliament and politicians to support more effective, inclusive, transparent and responsive democratic institutions.

During the initial phase GPG supported MPs in improving the effectiveness of their constituency casework and developing strategic plans to enable collective solutions to policy challenges at the local level.
